Humber Door raises £500 for Dove House hospice

The ‘Humber Door’, which was created by Hurst Plastics to celebrate Hull’s year as ‘UK City of Culture 2017’, has helped to raise vital funds for a local charity. The composite door, which features an image of the iconic Humber Bridge, recently sold for £500 in aid of Dove House Hospice.

Hurst Plastics’ marketing manager Hayley Barker was invited to the hospice to see how the funds will be used to provide day therapy and residential care for patients.

Hayley said: “We were delighted to make such a special door that captures the heart of Hull and donate it to this amazing local charity. Hurst Plastics is a Hull business through and through and our local community means a great deal to us. Dove House Hospice looks after more than 1000 local people and their families every year and it was wonderful to learn that the funds raised will help the hospice provide essential patient care and support.”

The Humber door, which was manufactured at Hurst Plastics’ factory in Hull, and features a photograph of the famed 2220m long suspension bridge. The image was reproduced on to the glazed panel of the door using Hurst Plastics’ digital printing technology.
